Are you having trouble with (q1)?

For (q2) think of the fact that since a*a=e, for all a in G, a is it's own inverse.

i dont under stand

first qustion i dont understand it????

What do elements look like for your first group?

For the 2nd question a^2 = e implies that a = a^-1 now we want to show that ab = ba for all a, b \in G. So ab = (a^-1 b^-1) from our given but a^-1 b^-1 = (ba)^-1. But we also know that every element is its own inverse and since it's a group we have closure therefore if we call ba = c, then c = c^-1 or in other words ba = (ba)^-1. Now look at what we have ab = a^-1 b^-1 = (ba)^-1 = ba. It's been awhile since algebar, anyone confirm/deny?

First, do you understand that you are expected to make some effort of your own and show your work so we will know what kind of suggestions to make?

For example, what are the members of Z2? And then what are the members of $Z_2\oplus Z_2$?

now, how to proof that if G is group then
o(ab) = o(ba)
o(cac^-1) =o(a)

for all a,b,c in G
note that G not abelian???????

Your first question hasn't been answered and you have not answered the hint question that people asked you. Halls is correct, YOU have to show some work that you've done on the problem. Do so.

Q3)if Gis afinite group of even order, then G contains an element (a) not equal zero s.t.
a^2= e

Q4) LET G is abilian of order pq , with g.c.d (p,q)=1 , assume there exist a,b in G and
o(a)= p,o(b) = q show that G is cyclic

What part of stop posting questions and start showing your own work was misinterpreted? It is unlikely you will get help if you only keep posting questions.

these question i want to solve it for my homework
and for my searching ...
its very important for me
